Spotlight on Villa La Estancia in Mexico

Plan something new for your fall or winter vacation this year.  We have luxury units available right on the beach in the Villa La Estancia resort in Nuevo Vallarta.  There is a wonderful assortment of activities and shopping available, and there’s always the option to just spend a few days relaxing on the beach.

The Fall weather is delightful with temperatures averaging in the 70’s and 80’s.  Getting there couldn’t be easier.  Flights are available to the Puerto Vallarta airport (PVR) from San Diego, Orange County, and LAX.  Direct flights arrive in about 3 hours, and the resort is a 10-minute cab ride from the airport.  Here are a few suggestions for your trip:

Make it a golf vacation

Vista Vallarta Club de Golf
Vista Vallarta Club de Golf

Vista Vallarta Club de Golf has grown in the past decade to become an international destination for golf enthusiasts.  Opened in April 2001, the first course at Vista Vallarta is a Signature Design by Jack Nicklaus. Since this course is located on the property’s highest elevation, golfers are treated not only to world class golf but will enjoy breathtaking views of Puerto Vallarta, the Marina and Banderas Bay as well.

Also on the property is a beautiful course designed by Tom Weiskopf.  Built on the property’s lower west end, golfers won’t believe they have simply taken a different turn from the club house.Here the terrain is extreme with dense jungles, deep ravines and swift creeks.  Both the Weiskopf and Nicklaus courses are designed with scenery unlike any you’ll find in the United States.  Pack your clubs, and give us a call.  We’ll give you all the details for reserving your amazing golf vacation.   For more information about golfing at Vista Vallarta Club de Golf, visit their website at

Amazing Dolphin Encounter

The Aquaventuras Park is a short drive from our resort at Villa La Estancia, and it’s well worth it.  This is a wonderful water park that features up close swimming with dolphins.  It’s really an amazing adventure.  Testimonials on their website help capture some of the fun in store for you there.  Anne from New Jersey writes,

Dancing in the water with a dolphin was unbelievable. I will never forget today!

Jocelyn Limos described her adventure this way:

If you love dolphins like I do, then this is something you need to do for The Experience of a Lifetime. I would do this over and over again. Thank you for my dream come true!

We expect you’ll be writing your own testimonial of the amazing experience you’ll have spending some time with these wonderfully intelligent and affectionate creatures.  Aquaventuras Park offers some great discounts for advance booking, so call us at 310-780-3411 first, then visit their website to book your tickets and start planning your exciting getaway.

Pry yourself away from the beach and do some shopping

There’s nothing wrong with spending all day every day on the beach (bring sunscreen!).  After all, it’s a vacation, and you should have the freedom to just relax.  Despite the amazing beauty of the pristine beach right in front of our resort, we recommend that you set aside at least one day to experience the great shopping, food, and culture in the community surrounding Villa La Estancia.  A quick cab ride into Puerto Vallarta will bring you to beautiful shops and world-class dining.  Local artisans have their wares on display daily, and we can’t let you go home before you sample at least one of the local restaurants with an ice-cold beverage of your choice.  As with most of our Five Star Vacation Rental getaways, the only problem you can expect is that you’ll regret you didn’t book your stay for longer.

But wait, there’s more!

We’ve only just scratched the surface of all the fun things for you and the family on your Villa La Estancia vacation.  In a future blog we’ll give you details on horse-back riding, boating, fishing, and other fun things.  But don’t wait for us to write about it!  Call us and book your vacation, so you can dive into your own Puerto Nuevo adventure.

We have over a dozen units available for rent in Villa La Estancia ranging from our luxurious penthouse suite to lower level suites overlooking the pool.  Whichever unit you choose, you can be confident that your suite will be clean, comfortable, and luxurious.  Our mission is to make sure your precious vacation time is always enjoyed to the fullest.  View our Villa La Estancia properties on this page, or call us today at 310-780-3411 to book your Nuevo Vallarta vacation.
